Fine publisher's navy blue cloth, gilt- pictorial binding, with bright gilt title on the front and on the spine. No hint of edgewear, and protected in a mylar sleeve. Very clean and tight inside and out, with scattered minor foxing along endleaves and edges, and no browning. All 25 tipped-in color plates are present with their titled tissue guards, plus numerous Nielsen decorations and illustrations. This is the first English trade edition, and a glorious example of early 20th Century book making.There is a contemporary ink inscription on the verso of the frontispiece. Nielsen's early influence on Walt Disney, soon to be his employer in Hollywood, is evident.
